MILAN, ITALY: Maire Tecnimont SpA said that its subsidiary Tecnimont SpA has been awarded by Yara International ASA (Yara) an EPC contract for a new urea granulation plant to be implemented in Sluiskil, Netherlands. The contract value is approximately €125 million.

The scope of project entails the realization on a lump-sum turn-key basis of a 2,000 tonne per day new urea granulation plant, including some utilities. It is expected to be completed in 25 months from the signing date, and will be executed by an integrated team of Yara’s and Tecnimont’s specialists.

The plant will use proprietary technology developed and owned by Yara, which allows also the production of special, sulphur enriched, urea grades.

The Sluiskil site, located close to Antwerp, is one of the most important European fertilizer production complexes, Maire Tecnimont said.

“We are really honoured to work again for Yara, the world’s largest fertilizer producer. This project adds another prestigious reference to our fertilizer business experience as an EPC contractor, and offers sound evidence of the group’s leadership in the fertilizer sector, one of the strategic pillars of our core business,” said Pierroberto Folgiero, chief executive officer, Maire Tecnimont.
